This is the best grab and go setup I have ever used. It is perfect for those observing sessions when you don't want the hassle of packing up a scope, or for those quick looks in the backyard before calling it a night.
The convenience and comfort of the 45 degree viewing angle cannot be overstated; no more neck or head aches!
This setup includes everything but the tripod shown below:
Miyauchi 20 x 77 Binoculars
30x interchangeable eyepieces
Bogen 3421 Heavy Duty Telephoto Lens support with Pro Quick Release Adapter
Stellarview Red Dot finder
Heavy Duty Case
The rubber eye guards for the 30x eps do not fold down, so it is difficult to take in the entire FOV with glasses. I had the eye guards professionally trimmed down on a lathe so that both eye glass wearers and non eye glass wearers can use them.
The bogen 3421 looks like it was made for the Miyauchis. The quick release component makes it so easy to setup in the dark. It is as simple as taking them from the case and sliding them into the cradle. The binoculars only weigh 5.5 lbs.
These are very good looking binoculars. On a scale of 1 to 10, these look like a 9. There are just a couple of paint chips on the dew shields and an occasional fleck in the finish.
They will show you the rings of Saturn and some banding on Jupiter, but here they also show some false color (especially on the moon.) I guess that is why they call them semi-apos. On deep sky, the views are exceptional and virtually color free.
I checked the internet for the absolute best new price I could find on this package and came up with $1273 (not including the case.)
This set up can be yours for $973 plus shipping (a discount of $300 plus the case.)
I prefer money order, if you want to use Pay Pal (I am verified,)please add 3%.
Thanks for looking
